    I highly recommend using this. I have it on my board.

    also, backup your database and if any hacker messes with vb, re upload your old database to set everything back to norm

    Hello,

    The reason I have not gotten the update is because my dad erased the mail with my customer ID and number. He did that accidentally when he cleared his inbox. How am I able to get my ID and number back? Who do I e-mail?

    BTW .. My friend John and I talked about the whole thing. The thing that really happened, really wasnt a hack but one of the members found out the password of an admin. Then he took my friend and I off admins, made himself an admin. and messed everything up. But still I did not like that, so 3 members got banned and banned for a long time.

    Sean,when a security bug is posted here at vBulletin.com,it can easily be read by a potential hacker.As filburt said,you should always make sure you have the latest version of vbulletin,or at least implement the required fix for the version you are running.

    All that plus:

    - Upload getadmin.php to your forum directory.
    - Enter in your username.
    - Log into the admin control panel and change your old password.
    - Delete getadmin.php ASAP.
